Default New KLR rider from the Rock

Well first of all, many thanks to Glenn for adding a Newfoundland section. Greatly appreciated. ;)

As mentioned in my new member intro, I am now the proud owner of a mint 1996 KLR that was well looked after. A great addition to my present ride... a 2007 KLX 250.
After logging over 37,000 kms over the last three years on the lil' KLX I figured I should be ready for a BIG bike.

Now how about some of my fellow Nfld KLR'ers intoroducing themselves here. I'm sure I may know ya's from the RTR forum as I'm pretty sure youse'll know me as well. But there may some stragglers.

Happy Riding,
Relic

Amen to that. I have nearly 50% of the bikes value spent again in mods / farkles.

Tremendous amount of info on this site, with lots of knowledgeable members to offer advice.

Are ex-pats allowed in? I was born and raised in St. John's, but left in '92 chasing a job offer. Ottawa is where the house is, but St. John's is still home. I still get back pretty regularly, though (I'm here now, actually, as Dad is ill).

Cheers,
Dave

Thanks for the kind words, but unfortunately, I can't see this ending well. Five years of prostate cancer followed by two years of bone cancer and all of the associated treatments have taken their toll. He's done well, all things considered, but this disease is relentless.

Get your prostate checked, even if you aren't in a high risk group. You need to catch this early, as the alternative is not pretty.

Cheers,
Dave C

Just sayin' hi to all my dually buds on the rock. I'm in gander last 20+ years but grew up "somewhat"(45yrs young) in west St.John's. There's a crew of us around here that run old logging roads and the coast fairly often. It's always a good time. I'm glad to see people enjoying riding regardless of the ride or their age. I've been 35yrs at it and it'll always be in my blood. I've had plenty of bikes over the years but dual-purpose is custom fit for the rock. I'm riding an 08 green KLR650 (*and a Vulcan 1500). No major KLR mods yet (approx. 5600km). The bike is a bit power enemic but it is capable & comfortable. What are a few mods that I really shouldn't be without ?
Cheers and contact me if you're in the area or have questions/advise.
Thanks guys. Sam
